Both camera look similar form outside but do they differ from inside or almost have same core specification, take a look at the core difference below…
Unfortunately both camera are using 16 Mp APS-C X-Trans CMOS II Sensor and EXR II image processor, hence the image quality will remains same from both the camera.
Both camera share same Fujinon 23mm f/2 Fixed Focal Length Lens,
Again in AF system there is no change, Both the camera shares same Hybrid AF system and AF points, so again no change here.
Since the sensor is same and image processor is also same, by implementing new image processing algorithm, Fuji is able to get ISO upto 51200. But it doesn’t mean you will see significant difference in the image quality of both the camera.
A redesigned shutter mechanism, which is now entirely electronic, also delivers quickened shutter speeds up to 1/32,000 sec.
Built-in WIFi to share your files easily without any physical pain.
Verdict: If you are a owner of X100S than wait for Fuji X200, since there is no change in the sensor, image processor and lens of both the camera.

Fujifilm X100T is just announced by the fujifilm today, the camera features same 16MP APS-C X-Trans CMOS II sensor, 23mm F2 lens and EXR II processor as of its predecessor, the new features list include advance OVF and LCD display screen.
other improvements include introduction of classic chrome mode, a bit more wide ±3 exposure compensation dial, now you get an aperture ring with 1/3 steps and seven customizable Fn buttons.
So basically if we get same X100S camera with same image processor, sensor and lens… but upgraded OVF and display screen..and with the help of new firmware the camera hardware limits are pushed one-stop more.. however we won’t notice any major difference in the image quality of both the camera.
Press Release of X100T
FUJIFILM ANNOUNCES FLAGSHIP X100T PREMIUM COMPACT WITH IMPROVED HYBRID VIEWFINDER, ENHANCED CONTROLS AND ULTRA FAST SHUTTER SPEED
X100T Features Electronic Rangefinder, improved ergonomics, and new ‘Classic Chrome’ Film Simulation for intensely colored photos
Valhalla, N.Y., September 10, 2014 – FUJIFILM North America Corporation today announced the new FUJIFILM X100T, a premium compact, fixed lens camera designed for photographers looking for the ultimate in image quality, performance and functionality. The X100T comes newly equipped with an advanced Hybrid Viewfinder with an Electronic Rangefinder that now gives users reduced display lag times, automatic brightness controls and a Natural Live View shooting display.
The new FUJIFILM X100T blends award-winning image quality with a renowned design that gives enthusiast and professional photographers the most important controls and functions at their fingertips. The X100T combines the resolution and power of the APS-C X-Trans CMOS II Sensor and EXR Processor II with a bright FUJINON 23mm F2 fixed lens for optical excellence.
And to give photographers a new type of film simulation to work with, the X100T ships with Fujifilm’s new ‘Classic Chrome’ film simulation that delivers muted tones and deep color reproduction for beautifully dramatic images.
Advanced Hybrid Viewfinder with Electronic Rangefinder
The FUJIFILM X100T uses an improved Advanced Hybrid Viewfinder with Electronic Rangefinder that allows focusing as if using a mechanical rangefinder. While in optical viewfinder mode, pushing the OVF / EVF switching lever to the left will switch the viewfinder to electronic rangefinder mode. Additionally, Focus Peak Highlight and Digital Split Image can be selected, and the magnification of the focused area can be changed. Compared to the X100S, the frame coverage in the X100T has been increased from 90% to 92%, and the field of view can now be accurately checked closer to the actual subject. The X100T also uses Real-time parallax correction for more accurate image composition. Reframing after bringing the image into focus is no longer necessary, allowing for a seamless shooting experience.
Photographers also now have access to Shooting Effect Reflection settings within the Hybrid Viewfinder to recreate selected camera effects, including Film Simulations. When turned off, users can see the natural view. The image within the finder is displayed at the maximum frame when shooting under dim light and dark areas such as night scenes, enabling shooting while looking at a smooth image, all while greatly reducing display lag time.
Range of controls expanded, upgraded body
The FUJIFILM X100T now allows photographers to set the aperture to 1/3 steps using the aperture ring, while the exposure compensation dial has been extended to ±3 stops. Also, the command lever has been changed to a command dial, and through the adoption of a 4-way controller to improve operability. The X100T is also now equipped with 7 customizable Fn buttons for a truly personal shooting experience.
The FUJIFILM X100T has an upgraded body that is die-cast magnesium on the top surface and bottom of the body for a highly durable and functional design. The X100T’s aperture ring, shutter speed dial, and exposure compensation dial now have a groove shaped pattern for an improved feel and grip. The X100T also features a high-definition 1.04M-dot 3″ LCD has for extraordinary visibility.

Fujifilm’s unprecedented image quality has been cultivated through the development of photographic films over the past 80 years and helps to reproduce warm skin tones, bright blue skies and rich green trees, just as photographers remember the scene.

Finally we have got confirmation that Fuji X100S successor Fuji X100T is coming, the information is accidentally leaked by David Hobby when he uploaded X100T image on flickr, later he removed the image but we are able to get the screen shot of the EXIF info page. David Hobby is author of the Strobist.com blog, Davaid has been working with Fujifilm in past so there is no doubt that he can get access to un-announced fuji cameras.
Take a look at the rumored specification
24MP X-Trans APS-C sensor
Faster AF than X100s
New fixed 23mm lens
New EVF, better than X100s

Latest info about Fujifilm x200 surfaced over the web, according to the rumor the fuji x200 will feature a newly developed sensor, no-optical low pass filter due to X-trans technology and advance contrast+Phase based AF sysytem, however the source is new so take it as grain of salt,
Fuji X200 rumored specification
- 24MP X-Trans sensor
- faster AF than X100S
- tilt screen
- new fixed lens
- new EVF, better than X100S, but not as much as X-T1
- wider detection area
There are also some confusion about the X200 sensor size, since some new sources saying that the upcoming camera from fujifilm may feature a fullframe sensor, however based on my experience fujifilm will not do such a experiement with ultra popular X100 series.
